With the approach of Labor Day, the first turns of the ski season are probably only seven or eight weeks away. To whet your appetite, we offer the trailer from the 70th Warren Miller ski film, which will be touring Colorado in November at the usual theaters including the Paramount in downtown Denver.

This year’s film, “Timeless,” includes segments shot in Wyoming, France, Switzerland, Austria and two Colorado locations, Eldora and Silverton Mountain.

The Eldora segment looks at the local characters who help make that modest mountain west of Boulder unique.

“It’s sort of a montage of various people who help make Eldora this special local mountain,” said Jessi Hackett, a spokesman for Boulder-based Warren Miller Entertainment. “It’s paying homage to the mom-and-pop resort that is Boulder’s backyard.”

The Silverton segment takes advantage of the great spring skiing in the San Juans this year because of above-average snowfall there in winter and spring. Athletes in that segment include Olympic moguls skier Jaelin Kauf, Austrian freeride world champion Lorraine Huber and big mountain skier Connery Lundin of Squaw Valley, Calif., a former alpine racer who attended the University of Colorado. They were there in April.

“Those three do some awesome spring skiing, because conditions were so good so late in the season,” Hackett said. “It’s cool when you pair it with the mom-and-pop scale of Eldora. It shows the diversity of skiing in Colorado.”

The film is set to release in October.
